Orchids have adapted themselves to a variety of climatic conditions. From the cold, high Himalayan habitats to warm tropical regions, they flourish everywhere. The genus or characteristic that aids this are its pseudo-bulbs which look like flower buds but are actually bulbs that store water. These kinds of orchids can go for prolonged durations without water until the medium dries out.
The life cycle of the Dendrobium orchid includes:
- flowering phase: winter to spring
- growing phase: summer to autumn
- dormancy: autumn to winter
